New to boom beach!
« on: Apr 04, 2018, 01:00 AM »
Hi all, i am new to boom beach!
 I play clash of clans and Hayday! I decided to download boom beach and my husband is trying to understand how it works! He's on level 18 and our son has rushed headquarters to level 9 unfortunately! We are upgrading everything as quickly as possible!
 ANY advice is greatly appreciate on how this part of supercell works!

Welcome to Boom Beach
 
 The sticky here has lots of great guides.
 One especially important tips is that HQ should be upgraded whenever possible, as there are no downsides to doing it unlike Clash of Clans. Vault and Sculptor are the other 2 most important buildings IMO.

Actually, that is fotunate!  In Boom, unlike Clash, it is advantagous to rush your HQ.
 
 As Meowfestio noted, lots of helpful guides within .  One I would recommend in particular is .  
 
 Now the three of us can turn our attention back to Off Topic Games.

Hi MamaTanya, I don't know your play style but I strongly recommend ignoring defenses until around level 40.  You will be attacked about the same no matter what.  I prefer a strong offense that allows me to raid most bases on my map and get resources I need when it's time to upgrade.
 
 Here's my personal order of preference in development:
 1. HQ. (Key to everything in Boom Beach!)
 2. Radar (allows you to get more bases on your map for more resources and to find new heros.)
 3. Armory (allows you to upgrade troops so you can become more powerful, helping in raiding more bases on your map for more resources!)
 4. Landing Craft (Allows your boats to carry more troops to attack with.)
 NOTE: Landing Craft are "hard" to upgrade because basically they're out of use until upgrade is complete, leaving you with fewer troops to raid with.  Also, 3 and 4 are sort of interchangeable. You want to plan to upgrade your armory after a troop is finished upgrading AND a landing craft is finished upgrading.
 5. Vault (whether you go offense or defense you will be attacked. Upgrading vault reduces losses.)
 6. Gunboat (for more GBE!)
 7. Storage units for all resources.
 8. Residences.
 
 I think that's about it.  You can ignore upgrading defenses until about level 39 when you'll be forced to (only thing left to upgrade to get HQ up another level).
 
 Best advice: Do not use Green statues or blue statues.  It's tempting but greens are really useless unless you NEVER get attacked, but first time you get attacked, all the benefits of the green statues are lost.  Your attacker thanks you for building extra resources for him.
 
 Focus on Purple (GBE, PSC, Resource Rewards) initially.  Also reds for Troop Damage and Troop Health.
 
 I personally hate tanks but probably 90% of the people who play boom beach love them and boom beach tends to cater to them (tanks+medics are vastly overpowered and require little to no skill).  Tanks were the last unit I upgraded to max.  I'm a zooka player and love the high damage zookas do, but Supercell has it out for us LOL (so it seems).
 
 Good luck to you and your husband!

Theres lots of great guides for various things within the game both here on the forums as already pointed out and youtube. If u search for what u want. Like for example "boom beach statue guide".
 
 Anyway glad to see your enjoying the game. My advice to u is focus on upgrading troops/armoury, landing crafts and gunboat. Upgrade hq as soon as u can and make sure your vault is always leveled up as much as possible to save loot from people raiding u.
 
 Defence can be a focus if u choose that path. But youll hit a point where beating bases gets very difficult. So its better to upgrade the offence first. Then focus on defences later. And try not to let levels discourage you. Level difference isnt to big of a factor in this game. Your statues and strategy is.

One trick I learned from our forum is to use the bases on your map as a kinda of storage. Leave bases alone ( other than a bucket fill) till those bases you can boom add up to enough resourses/gold to build what you want to build. Attack , build , logoff then wait till you can attack enough to build the next troop or building. Kinda keeps loses minimized between builds.
  Also remember to check your achievements as diamond rewards are sometimes close to being rewarded and that can shift priorities.

Xray missed possibly the most important upgrade..2nd only to HQ.....SCULPTOR!! ( when possible..even number hq)statues are arguably the most important part of this game so being able to place that next statue is game changing.

I used to play clash too. But this game is so much better, don?t think like Clash, rush upgrade is good.
 
 it is more rewarding if you join a Task Force, as you can discuss tips and what to upgrades first.
 
 have fun...
